On Sunday, Rajkummar, along with the filmmakers, gave muhurat shot for the film. Rajkummar shared a picture from the sets with a caption that read, “Life is all about contributing in making this world a better place.”

Earlier in a statement, talking about the role, Rao said, “It’s an engaging story, relevant in today’s environment. As an actor, I am always on the lookout to play characters I haven’t explored, and HIT gives me a chance to do that. I am looking forward to take this journey with Sailesh and Dil Raju.” HIT’s plot focuses on a cop who is tracing a missing woman. The film will also star Sanya Malhotra in the lead role.

Director Sailesh Kolanu had earlier shared that he wanted to cast someone who “can bring that darkness to the role and still make the audience root for him with a matured performance.”

“The first case of HIT tells the story of a police officer who is constantly fighting a battle with his past and his present. So it’s a troubled character. I wanted to cast someone who can bring that darkness to the role and still make the audience root for him with a matured performance. I felt Raj can evoke that kind of response. I have been following Rajkummar’s work ever since I watched Shaitaan. He is a terrific actor and has managed to surprise us every time with his performances. I am really excited to be working with him,” he said.
